Whenever I'm looking for a quick meal that's balanced in protein and veggies I go for a stir fry. This week I had beff...beef? on hand and some cute looking mushrooms and string beans.
~1 lb steak sliced thin (approx. 1/4 inch pieces)
1 lb string beans (I used haricot verts b/c I be fancy)
1 container (precise, yes) of mushrooms, stalks removed, sliced (I had baby bellas on hand)
2 tablespoons of Lobster dad's secret soy sauce / garlic / ketchup concoction or other marinade
1 teaspoon of black bean sauce
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt to taste
Marinade* if you don't happen to have the my dad's secret sauce on hand:
~2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2-3 minced garlic cloves (depending on preference for garlickness)
A squirt or 2 of ketchup
maybe some sugar or salt
*Yes I'm super vague b/c it's secret and I actually don't know.
Slice it up! Go against the grain and remove any excess fat or chewy things. Pour 2 tablespoons of marinade into a bowl and mix with the meat. Let sit while preparing the rest of the veggies. Wash the string beans and trim the hard stems. Remove stalks from mushrooms and slice the caps.
